“We design our own yarn and pick out the colors and fibers which gives it its own character as we try it on different machines and in combinations.”

Susan trained as a textile designer because of the way it combined the intricate nature of sculpture and the whimsical palettes of color into one wearable art form. She collects her inspiration from everywhere--especially in color combined in unexpected ways like a detailed vase at a flea market or an eclectic mix of clothing on an art student. “Even the mistakes on a machine-knitted piece,” Susan says, “can spark a new idea.”
